A good conversation is inclusive of multiple perspectives and ideas. In this 90-minute session, experience a conversation framework that promotes engagement, collaboration, and discovery resulting in a shared appreciation and understanding that drives teams to better-informed decisions and actions.  And while this conversation framework is effective both in-person and virtually, this session focuses on how facilitators can encourage active engagement and inclusive participation when we meet online.  You will learn multiple tools on how to provide opportunities for participants to engage in a meaningful and impactful conversation.  

Learning objectives/outcomes:  

  • Learn about a framework for having inclusive conversations
  • Learn how our brain processes information to make decisions 
  • Learn how to facilitate a conversation in the virtual space
